ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Of couse I'd like the latest and greatest but most of all I'd like a quieter PC that doesn't run too hot. Looking at just a DVD R/W (no Blu-ray), around 6GB - 8GB RAM and internal storage capability of 1TB. Basically I just want something that'll get me by for the next 5 years. I don't do any hard core gaming, but I'm looking to do more photo editing (Adobe CS4).

I appreciate any help!
